Some movers in the poll are Wyoming who made the big leap by moving up three spots to No. 6 and are ahead of BYU. On the other end of the spectrum is East Carolina who went from No. 4 to No. 9 after losing to Tulane 36-33. Speaking of Tulane, they are now No. 8 and moved up one spot from last week.c
